Nick Ross, former BBC Crimewatch and Watchdog presenter, is the ambassador of the newly-launched DGCOS (Double Glazing and Conservatory Ombudsman Scheme). And Archer suppliers KLG, Rutland Windows and Stormshield are proud to be founding members (KLG the first company in Notts, Rutland Windows the first in Derbyshire)!

blue-dual-glazedThe purpose of DGCOS is to safeguard consumers from falling prey to the dodgy practices of ‘cowboy’ operators.     The scheme provides comprehensive protection for homeowners who have windows, doors, conservatories and associated products installed by its members. It means, in a nutshell, no more nightmares about being ‘ripped off’… Kevin Greenfield, Managing Director of KLG Amazing Glazing, said:


“Our industry has needed a scheme like this for a long time and KLG is delighted to be a founding member of DGCOS – the first Nottingham company to gain this recognition. Over the years we’ve cut no corners in our efforts to be rated as a stand-out supplier in the Nottingham area. We’ve heard too many home improvement horror stories, and giving our customers peace of mind has always been a top priority.”


According to DGCOS founder, Tony Pickup:

“Homeowners buying from a DGCOS member will receive a free quote and ‘Peace of Mind’ pack explaining that they will have the full protection of the Ombudsman Scheme behind them. As well as a comprehensive insurance-backed guarantee to underwrite the installers guarantee should they cease to trade.”

And, Kevin adds about KLG, that although DGCOS certification might be the newest weapon in their ‘peace of mind armoury’, it is by no means the only one:

“Now – like fellow Archer Systems suppliers Rutland Windows and Stormshield – we are able to give our consumers the total reassurance of getting a superb quality Archer product – be that a door, a conservatory, windows or whatever. Secure in the knowledge that it will be fitted by reliable, friendly, professional, BM TRADA-certified installation teams. And that the entire job will be protected under our DGCOS membership!”


When you’re spending a sizeable sum on improving your home, this sort of ‘belt and braces’ satisfaction safeguard has got to be worth its weight in gold, hasn’t it?
